  • Merchant Ships – Discography
    By on August 20th, 2010 | 124 Comments124 Comments Comments

    bitrate: 192 kBit/s
    genre: Screamo/Emo/Indie
    country: USA
    notes: Merchant Ships was a screamo band from Indiana that recently broke up. Fortunately, however, there is a fair bit of music that they released in the short amount of time that they were together. They were a unique band, though similar to Make Me, with their own crafted twist that incorporated twinkly guitar riffs with screamed vocals and sing along parts. Definitely a fun band and worth having in your library if you love screamo or emo. This is their entire discography, to my knowledge, other than the live set mp3s (which are available for download via their myspace).



  • Reaching Away
    By on January 25th, 2010 | 117 Comments117 Comments Comments


    bitrate: Various (128 kBit/s and 155 kBit/s (vbr))
    genre: Emo
    country: USA
    notes: I feel quite guilty for posting this, since these songs are unreleased (and currently I don’t know are they planned to be released or not). But the three songs are circling the web, although only among a small group of people. So if anyone from Reaching away sees this and wants me to put it down from the blog, I will. Until then… Reaching away are 4 members, 3 hail from the legendary emo band The Pine. This is just one of those bands that you are really speechless about. Absolutely fantastic and stunning songs, the guys from the Pine grown up now but definitely haven’t lost their touch! Don’t miss the chance to take a listen, this is what emo should sound like!

  • Arroyo Seco – Cassette Tape
    By on December 16th, 2009 | 110 Comments110 Comments Comments


    bitrate: 192 kBit/s
    genre: Emo, Screamo
    country: USA
    notes: Either it was my incompetence or just plain bad luck,but I couldn’t get a hold of this release in a long time. But finally I have it and I’m very happy to share it with you boys and girls. Pre-Life At These Speeds. And that’s about all I’ll say. Just take a listen, this is amazing stuff.

  • Lobo’s Son – The Circle Cuts (song)
    By on December 6th, 2009 | 105 Comments105 Comments Comments


    bitrate: 194 kBit/s (vbr)
    genre: Acoustic, Emo
    notes: This is probably one of my favorite unknown song/artist out there. This song was featured on the “This Is Your Life” compilation released by “Ape Must Not Kill Ape” records back in 2004. And that’s all I know about this band. Don’t know where it’s from, they have no other songs(at least I haven’t found any in the past years), no Lastfm page. I found a band with the same name on myspaz, but they ain’t replying about is this their song. Either way, completely unknown band, but this song is absolutely stunning. Love at first listen, so to speak. Enjoy…

  • Watership Down – 7” (1997)
    By on December 3rd, 2009 | 102 Comments102 Comments Comments


    bitrate: 192 kBit/s
    genre: Emo, Hardcore
    country: USA
    notes: Way back in 1997, there was this band and all three songs they recorded were absolutely amazing. What strikes me the most is that this band is quite unknown, so this is the chance to correct that. Take a listen, enjoy and feel sad that this band fell apart in 2003.

  • Bare Arms – 3” EP
    By on November 30th, 2009 | 95 Comments95 Comments Comments


    bitrate: 160 kBit/s
    genre: Emo, Screamo
    country: Australia
    notes: This band I reeeeally like! And it was a great surprise when Thomas, a dude from Bare Arms, contacted me about putting a link up on the blog…don’t mind if I do! Excellent band, with a great reputation of playing with famous bands such as Daniel Stripped Tiger, La Dispute… Angry and sometimes slow and gentle vocals, with fast pounding tunes make your chest pound while listening. First two songs on this release are probably the best female vocal featuring songs I have ever heard. Oh and by the way, they have the best description on Lastfm…ever!
    “Bare Arms come from Sydney.
    They are made of a High School Teacher, a Design Student, a Printing Student and a Personal Assistant/ Vegan Cupcake Baker.
    Some of them played in the Thaw and When Chimps Attack
    They are a band and act as such”

  • Sore Eyelids – Sore Eyelids (2009)
    By on November 26th, 2009 | 116 Comments116 Comments Comments


    bitrate: 320 kBit/s
    genre: Emo
    country: Sweden
    notes: Sore Eyelids features members from the legendary Suis La Lune. Need I say more? I do? Well, to be honest, these tunes are the most beautiful tunes I have heard since hearing the epic emo band The Pine. A soothing voice puts you into a calm place surrounded by gentle chaos created by stunningly played instruments. This masterpiece will be released on tape, so keep your eyes on it and if you can, get it, this project deserves both support and attention.

  • Radio Burroughs – The Principles Of Hope Or Hybris (2009)

    bitrate: 220kbit (VBR)
    genre: Emo
    country: Germany
    notes: Time to upload something nice and sweet and less dark and brOOtal:) If you, by any chance, red my Petethepiratesquid/Radio Burroughs show review, then you know how I feel about this band. So I really don’t know why I haven’t uploaded this jewel a lot earlier. Download and enjoy, this is one very lovely band.

  • Melete – Tour EP (2009)
    By on November 5th, 2009 | 111 Comments111 Comments Comments


    bitrate: 180 kBit/s
    genre: Emo, Crust
    country: Slovenia
    notes: Ok, time for some non-screamo content to be posted by me. And this band deserves it, since as much as I see it has a really small fan-base, which is a big no no. Saw them this year in Belgrade, these guys play really astounding emo/crust/hardcore, they put on quite an intense show. Diy to the core with some nice understandings on how underground music scene should be. In emo we crust:) P.S. They don’t own a myspaz page, so check them out here http://www.bizniscore.blogspot.com/
